I think there is a bolt just above the headlight for the up and down and one on the side for side to side. I know for a fact there is one just 8000 miles away so i cant tell ya.

i think only vehicles that come with factory HID's get the levelling motors as well. so if you added them yourself, then its doubtful you have the ability to raise or lower them from inside the cab.

unfortanely with after market HID's in a flector headlight that wasn't designed for the HID type of light, then what you are seeing is probably glare. all lights give off some type of glare, even projectors. they call them squirrel finders since they point up towards signs and stuff. not much you can do with the reflectors. even pointing the down, you are now pointing your squirrel finders towards oncoming traffic. its hard to balance it well
